World Book Day is a national UK charity with a vision to help children from all backgrounds develop a life-long habit of reading for pleasure.

Their mission is to offer every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

As independent booksellers, we love to participate in celebrating World Book Day because we want to help create readers  of the future.

The £1 tokens and £1 books give all children the chance to choose and own a book- for free.   And we are glad to help make the specially produced £1 books available from our online store.  These are free to claim during the period of  celebrating World Book Day (usually stated on the tokens).  Outside this period, any remaining  £1 books will be made available for sale from our bookshop.
